Call for nominations: 2022 New Founders to Watch

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Future of Good is excited to announce the call for nominations for our 2022 list of 21 New Founders to Watch, presented by the TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good. 

It might just be the hardest time in recent history to start a new venture, but at Future of Good, we know that hasn’t deterred countless entrepreneurs with purpose and vision across Canada. These founders have started businesses, social purpose ventures, and non-profits that are rising to the challenge of helping communities thrive through a global crisis. They’re creating ventures that are scalable, investible, and sustainable. 

This is no easy task, and together, Future of Good and the TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good want to celebrate these founders for taking it on and getting traction. 

This is where you come in. Know a founder of a new venture (founded in the last three years) with a social or environmental mission doing innovative, meaningful work? Nominate them below. 

Future of Good’s 21 New Founders to Watch list profiles the stories, organizational journeys, and leadership insights from Canada’s most audacious social purpose founders. 

Deadline for nominations is November 22, 2021.



The TELUS Pollinator Fund for Good is an ambitious $100 million investment into the next generation of startups and social ventures that drive social outcomes and economic growth. The fund invests in entrepreneurs that address the largest challenges in Canada by providing them with the resources and capital that their big, bold ideas need to grow and thrive. They believe that the future of responsible business starts with purpose, which is why we’re really excited to be partnering with the TELUS Pollinator Fund once again.
